Low maintenance, drought tolerant palm

The Canary Island Date Palm is the number one palm planted by hotels and resorts because their tropical beauty surprises and outshines other palm varieties. 

This canary palm variety has a singular wide trunk that grows straight upwards with attractive grey bark. The bark has a textured pattern with a series of horizontal diamonds. The pattern resembles a pineapple’s skin, giving this tree its nickname, the ‘Pineapple Palm’. 

At the top of each Canary Palm sits a large crown of long arching fronds that are covered with long leaf blades that fill the landscape with lush, tropical color. The color only intensifies when this palm has large clusters of orange flowers in the spring that turn into bright orange showy fruit in the fall.

This tall growing palm grows large enough to make a bold statement in your landscape. It will attract the eyes of all of your neighbors, and you’ll be able to see its vibrant colors from miles away, inviting you to relax in the tropical paradise it creates.  

If you would like to keep a smaller palm, place your Canary Island Date Palm in a container. These palms love growing in pots, and can even be kept indoors. If you live above growing zone 8, place your palm tree in a pot and bring it indoors once the weather gets cold. 

Canary Island Date Palms are often celebrated as one of most low maintenance palm varieties available. They are heat resistant and drought tolerant so they need little to no attention during hot summer days.

Beautiful Canary Island Date Palm and very hardy!
My purchase of this beautiful Canary Island Date Palm from Fast-Growing Trees exceeded my expectations. The palm arrived on the expected date, healthy and ready to plant. It is rated for USDA zones 9-11. I live close to Puget Sound in western Washington state which for me is zone 8a & 8b. The climate here is described as a moderated Mediterranean climate with rainy breezy winters with occasional snow and frost and dry warm summers. In zone 8 and (for the adventurous gardener), I highly recommend this palm If planted in a protected sunny location and definitely given winter protection November thru February. I have seen them successfully grown outside in coastal British Columbia It is a great companion plant along side Windmill Palm, Pindo Palm and Mediterranean fan palm and other broadleaf evergreens.... Kudos to Fast-Growing-Trees.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Canary Island Date Palm

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Canary Island Date Palm .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Canary Island Date Palm gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Canary Island Date Palm again after the transplant is complete.

I live in zone 4 bordering closely to zone 3. I would like to plant a palm tree in a container, on deck in summer and winter in house. Which palm tree would you recommend?
Mary M on Apr 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All the palms that I purchased were put into containers last Spring, summer ed outdoors here in Montana, brought indoors before frost. They have winter ed well, the fan palm could use more misting. One just started showing signs of spider mites, which it more than likely caught from my orange tree. The palms at slow growers...but then again, I kept pot size small.
